Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A repetitive, sluggishly paced nocturnal rumination on why we bother reuniting with old friends we purposefully left behind."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"The film is intriguing in its character study and journey, buoyed by the performances of its leads."
‑ Mark Bell, Film Threat
"Damon Maulucci and Keir Politz make a fine feature debut with this small, punchy drama."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Sort of a minor-key, naturalistic variant on themes explored in Edgar Wright's 'The World's End,' as a suburban male 'soccer mom' is pulled back into a demimonde of punk rock music and sexual possibility by the surprise return of his 'toxic' old bandmate."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"The script is solid, but the film's greatest assets are Levine's visage and performance."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
